Daily Globe (Newspaper) - December 19, 1968, Ironwood, Michigan Alienist Gets Into Drug Test Controversy WASHINGTON psy- chiatrist called Wednesday for better controls over the evalua tion of new drugs before they are approved for use. Dr. Paul Lowinger of Deceit, told a Senate subcommittee that "the frequent use of potent drugs to treat disease demands better methods and more safe- guards." He told the monopoly subcom- mittee of the Senate Small Business Committee he had been concerned, in more than 15 years of experience, with the evaluation of vnew drugs for treating mental illness. Lowinger said he had tested the safety aspects of 27 new drugs for their manufacturers over a 12 year period, but only nine of his reports were relayed by the firms to the Food and Drug Administration. Safety problems of some of the drugs tested included d'zzi ness, drowsiness, mood depres sion, anxiety, insomnia, blurred vision, nausea, diarrhea "and a possible case of Low- ringer testified. It took him two years to obtain an answer from the FDA on whether the safety reports had been received, the witness said, and that agency has since reported it considers the manu- facturers in compliance witb the law. He proposed a new approach to drug evaluation and recom mended a federally sponsored National Institute of Pharmacol- ogy as the center of the opera- tion. Lowinger said "the involvement of the FDA with food, cosmetics and manufac- turing indicates that this new research program should be conducted separately." The subcommittee, headed by Sen. Gaylord Nelson, D-Wis is now looking into relationships between the medical profession and the drug industry. Dr. Franz J. Ingelfinger oi Boston, Mass., editor of the New England Journal of Medicine testified that better machinery for informing physicians of de velopments in drugs, not legisla tive steps, was required. He suggested publication of a compendium listing and evalu ating all drugs available to -a patient. Ingelfinger proposed that it be issued under the joint sponsor ship of the American Medica Association, the Pharmaceu tical Manufacturers Association the FDA and the Amencar Pharmaceutical Association.

SHORT Frank O'Neal BUT ITS PITCH CfcPlC OUT THERE DONT WORRY, ILL ALL- RIGHT. Indict Police In Paterson in Rights Count PATERSON, N.J. (AP) Eight policemen have been in- dicted by a federal grand jury on charges of conspiracy to vio- late and civil rights of Negro residents during racial disorders last summer. The indictment said the po- licemen assaulted one Negro, and broke windows of several business establishments operat- ed by Negroes. U.S. Atty. David Satz Jr. of New Jersey said the policemen were charged with violating a 1872 Civil Rights Act, the first such indictments against police- men brought in the state. A coalition of civil rights groups charged that the police department "rioted against the citizens, uncontrolled by their own v while sup- pressing the disorders. Paterson, which has a popula- tion of of which about are Puerto Ricans and Negroes, was hit by spo- radic disorders early in July. The civil rights coalition claimed that at one point during the disturbances that included firebombing and rock throwing by bands of Puerto Ricans, po- lice attacks against Spanish- speaking citizens were so in- tense that "some of the innocent and frightened victims tele- phoned the governor of Puerto Rico for rescue." A spokesman for the U.S at- torney's office said the police- men will not be arrested but will receive notices of the indict- ment. He said the arraignment has been scheduled for Jan. 3. The maximum penalty for each count of the six-count in- dictment is one year in prison and a fine. Not all the po- licemen are mentioned in every count.

It was the seventh Michigan college to close because of the flu. Mayor Robert Blackwell says he received intelligence reports from the FBI and State Police that outsiders would come from as far away as California to participate "in the demonstra- tion.

The Board of Supervisors turned down the request, de- spite insistence by the judges that a state law limiting judges to a year is unconstitu- tional. Atty. Gen. Frank Kelley also has ruled that counties can- not reduce judges' pay. County Attorney Robert P. Al- len agreed with the judges and recommended the outlay, but a vote among supervisors failed to turn up the necessary 44 major- ity. The vote was 35 for and 32 against. When the state increased its share of the pay of circuit judges from to in 1966, Oakland County reduced its share from to to conform to the limit set by law which the judges in- sist is unconstitutional. The supervisors also tabled a motion to spend a yearj to hire magistrates to assist! three district judges who will I take office in January. Cut your shopping fist in half!
